Ohio University’s Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine presents PreDOC!


This is Terry Porter from Ohio University’s Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OUHCOM). I am very excited to announce the launch of our new PreDOC program.

PreDOC, which stand for Pre-Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, is an undergraduate engagement program with the purpose of actively educating central Ohio undergraduates about osteopathic medicine and OU-HCOM, as well as connecting them to OU- HCOM students, staff, faculty, alumni and each other.  The goal of PreDOC is to create a close-knit community of undergraduate students who are informed and excited about practicing osteopathic medicine and who feel closely connected to OU-HCOM, our mission, and our culture.

We want to work with students from The Ohio State University, Otterbein University, Ohio Dominican University, Ohio Wesleyan University, Capital University, and Columbus State Community College.

We will hold a monthly session beginning in September and ending in May. PreDOC will be a standing program at OU-HCOM and we hope students will join us as they would a student organization at their home school.

I have attached our flier for you. Please share it and the registration information with your students and student groups.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to share this email with your colleagues who may teach or advise interested students.

We are excited to provide this amazing opportunity for your students and can’t wait for them to join!
